Macklemore’s presence at the Grammy Awards certainly ruffled numerous artists and fans’ feathers, many of whom thought Kendrick Lamar was more deserving of critical acclaim than Macklemore.
However, Christian rapper Bizzle has a different bone to pick with the duo.
Bizzle released “Same Love,” a response track to the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis track of the same name, calling out the duo for comparing the LGBT struggle to the Black struggle.
“You rather fight God than fight sin / The Bible is alright until it calls what you like sin / And I feel so disrespected that you were so desperate / You would compare your sexual habits to my skin / Calling it ‘the new black?’ Tell me, where they do that? / They hung us like tree ornaments, where were you at? / They burned us for entertainment, you go through that?”

Bizzle joins Lord Jamar among artists who believe that Macklemore is trying to push a “gay agenda” that does not belong in Hip Hop.
However, some artists, such as Saigon, believe that a person’s sexual preference is their own business.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed “Same Love” at the Grammy Awards this week, in a performance during which 33 couples were married on-air.
